Congrats on your choice of the best color option (IMO), but, I am biased....

What is the current condition of the paint?

Not familiar with Ziebart's. If my assumptions are right, seems a little pricey.

Sounds like it's a wash and detail that includes an application of a sealant and possibly wax. You can do this yourself. May want to consider Chemical Guys products.

Tint: must have ceramic to avoid messing with navigation and radio.

Best of luck.

Also, I believe tinted windows go great with the color, and clear bra looks like a necessity too.

So, the quote from Ziebart was $1020 for Interior-Exterior detailing + Diamond Gloss paint protection + Clear bra + Tinted windows. How does that sound?

thank you
